Leave No Trace Master Educator

The BSA Leave No Trace Master Educator Course provides participants with comprehensive training in Leave No Trace skills and ethics, instruction and practice on effective teaching methods, and information on the important role of outdoor ethics in scouting’s outdoor programs.

This 5-day course features a mix of classroom instruction and immersive practical application.

A major goal for this course is to graduate effective and active Leave No Trace Master Educators who will return to their home council and conduct the key Leave No Trace Trainer courses needed to support their unit, district and council outdoor programs. Course graduates will be able to teach Leave No Trace Trainer courses, BSA Leave No Trace 101 classes, and general Leave No Trace Awareness Workshops.

All food, housing, class materials, and group gear will be provided by Northern Tier. Participants will be required to provide personal gear similar to what is required on a standard Northern Tier trek.
